Happy Wednesday! We’ve had lots of rain lately and, although it’s been needed after such a dry April, I’m happy to see the bright sunshine this morning. I hope you’re having a good start to your day too.
It’s been all socks all the time around here. You’ve been so kind with your encouragement and comments. Still, I’ve been searching for a way to add a little variety to my knitting and the blog. I have dozens of WIPs (a very conservative estimate) sitting in bags and baskets, some so close to being finished. Thanks to the folks in the Year of Stash Socks (YOSS) group on Ravelry, the same folks who feed my sock obsession, I’ve found Project Zero.
The premise is that the more projects/goals you have at one time, the less likely you are of getting any of them accomplished. It’s important to make things manageable so that you’re able to actually check projects off your list.
From the Ravelry thread : “Here’s how it works: the personal challenge is to pick no more than THREE goals, and work on them to the exclusion of everything else on your list . . . . As you achieve one goal, you can cross it off and add another goal – bring one up from (a) reserve list, but never more than THREE at any given time.”
Count me in! Here’s the list I added to the Ravelry group thread.
- Dublin Bay Socks – May YOSS challenge
- Reyna Shawl
- Caspian Scarf
Waiting in the Wings
- Business Casual Socks
- Samothrace Wings
- Leg warmers
Take a Bow!
- finished projects coming soon
I’ll let you know how it goes. Wish me luck!
Do you have a certain way to manage your projects?
